"During the third quarter, we have seen positive effects on sales force and
volume growth moving us closer to a stronger sales momentum quarter by quarter -
even though we are cautious and lower our sales outlook in a tougher market.
Recent negative currency development in combination with continued investment in
top line growth activities leads us to lower the outlook for operating margin
for the full year." CEO Magnus Brännström comments.
